Medtronic launches discount program

Thursday, December 3, 2020

DUBLIN - Medtronic has launched a CGM Access Discount program that allows users without insurance coverage or those who switched insurance or lost coverage to access discounted out-of-pocket costs for a Medtronic CGM. The discount enables eligible patients to pay $180 for a Medtronic CGM (with a 12-month warranty) and $60/month for sensors. For more information on the program, click here. In October, CMS announced proposed changes that, if finalized, would expand Medicare coverage for CGMs. Earlier this year, Medtronic expanded its Medtronic Assurance program for U.S. customers who lose their jobs and health insurance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Current eligible customers can receive a three-month supply of sensors, infusion sets and reservoirs at no cost.
